2013 Fall Bucket List

Ah, fall!  Fall is hands down my favorite season.  As a lifelong hater of hot weather, I love when the cool crispness of fall starts to settle in.  I love apples and pumpkins and Halloween.  I love scarves and boots and blankets.  I love the cozy feeling that fall brings with it.  Last year I created a Autumn Bucket List, and even though I never really did a formal recap of how many of the items I accomplished (By the way, it was 8 out of 12.), I had a lot of fun with it.  So I decided to make another one this year.  There’s a few repeat items (hiking, drinking pumpkin beers, pie!) because, well, those are fall classics.  They must be done.  But there are a few new ones too,  many related to house projects I want to get done sooner rather than later.  So, without further ado…

Fall Bucket List


How about you; what’s on your to-do list this fall?

28 While 28

If there are two things bloggers love it’s lists and goals.  The first time I ran across a X while X list was on my friend Erin‘s blog.  Since then Laura, Heather and other bloggers have posted their own lists.  Today is my birthday, and as part of my quest to become more sentimental and make the most of my 28th year, I’ve decided to hop on board and make my own list.  Some of these items are off my Mission 101 list and some a new goals.  The goal of this list is to have new adventures, try new things, and challenge myself.  I don’t plan take the list too seriously because the goal is to have fun and enjoy life.  I’ll update this list as the year progresses and track my lists on my 28 While 28 page.
